Are you looking for a fabulous natural moisturiser for your skin and hair? Look no further!

Unlike commercial moisturisers that merely sit on top of your skin and "trap" whatever moisture is already in there, Shea butter actually works to penetrate the skin without clogging the pores. This means it can rejuvenate and nourish your skin while allowing it to breathe. The result? Supple and youthful looking skin!

Derived from the nut of Karite tree native to Africa, Shea butter contains essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins A, E and F, stigmasterol, triterpenoids, and other nutrients vital to collagen production. Use it for your homemade creams, body butters, facial moisturisers, lip balm, and more!

Besides being a superb moisturiser, Shea butter contains regenerative, anti-inflammatory , and anti-ageing components. It is often used as a natural remedy for various skin conditions such as sunburn, eczema, psoriasis, and nappy rash, just to name a few.

Is your hair looking dull and flat? This organic Shea Butter can also help repair dry, brittle, and damaged hair while restoring shine and moisture so it's back to its former glory in no time!

Safety Cautions

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:

  • Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.

  • Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.

  • Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
